The One High Street Dress That Is Ruling Instagram This Month

This week a lot of attention has been turned to & Other Stories' dress section, as the Duchess of Cambridge wore an £89 floral midi dress by the brand to visit her garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. However, this isn't the only floral dress from the brand to make headlines this week, as there's a puff-sleeve mini that has slowly been taking over our Instagram feeds.

Midis might still be a fashion-girl favourite, but hemlines are also rising this summer, with the minidress returning to the forefront. This & Other Stories dress is super pretty, with a whimsical vintage-style yellow-rose print, a square neckline and exaggerated puffy sleeves. Pair with white pumps for more casual events, or add strappy sandals if you want it to look a little dressier. It also comes in a linen wrap midi dress with a ruffle detail, if you remain committed to dresses falling below the knee.
